I was searching obits in Kanawha County last night and found a surprise. My great-great-grandmother's sister's obit mentioned a sister whose name I didn't have. I knew there were a few half siblings I didn't have names for and I'm excited to have finally found one.
Does anyone know about a LETHA LONG born between 1920 and 1935 more or less? I presume her maiden name is SMITH. Her half sister and my great-great-grandmother, Louise, lived with me until I was 8 years old and was my best buddy as a child. I'm so excited to find more about her family. I'm hoping Letha is living and that I can contact her or her children. I'm glad to share the information I have on Letha's parents, grandparents etc.
I can't give a good date for Letha's birth. Her father, John Frank Smith, was widowed two times that we know of and had children from the 1870's until the 1930's. I would guess Letha was born around 1930. I'm afraid I know nothing else about her. ANY ideas would be most appreciated! Thank you!
